'Drought is over' – Merciless fans all say the same thing after Tottenham win trophy after pre-season win over Rangers | The Sun

TOTTENHAM supporters are rejoicing after ending their trophy drought with victory in the Walter Tull Memorial Cup.

A 2-1 comeback win over Rangers saw Spurs lift the trophy – but fans on social media are all saying the same thing after the result.


Tottenham are often the butt of jokes from rivals, joking that their trophy cabinet is just collecting dust.

You have to go all the way back to the League Cup triumph in 2008 for the last time the North Londoners won a major honour.

Prior to that they had not won any silverware since the 1991 FA Cup final.

Harry Kane, though, will have something to say about that this season, as his clinical double at Ibrox today helped Spurs collect a long-awaited trophy.

And as former striker Jermain Defoe handed Hugo Lloris the trophy named after Walter Tull – who played for both Tottenham and Rangers – merciless fans were quick to poke fun at Spurs.

One joked on social media: "The trophy drought is over."

Another said: "Spurs have finally won a trophy."

Seeing the funny side, one Spurs fan wrote: "Walter Tull trophy winners, you’ll never sing that #coys."

And an account comically named 'Days since Spurs won a trophy' tweeted: "14 years of pain finally over."

Supporters are of course forgetting Spurs HAVE in fact lifted a trophy within the last three years.

Mauricio Pochettino led the club to Audi Cup glory in pre-season for the 2019-20 campaign.

And the Spurs faithful will be hoping history does not repeat itself after this latest triumph.

Pochettino was sacked just four months after his Audi Cup triumph, and fans will be desperate lightning doesn't strike twice under Antonio Conte.
